In fact, about 4.4% of the adult population is currently affected by ADHD, while about 50-70% of children continue experiencing the symptoms in their adult lives.
Both children and adults with ADHD experience a so-called elevated ‘delay discounting’. This means that they are more likely to choose immediate rewards over long-term benefits, which is connected to a broader issue with timing, both motor and perceptual.
Studies have shown long term life quality improvements and symptom reduction with some of those who were initially diagnosed with ADHD depending on the severity of the condition.
